                      Location

                      Located on the quiet north end of Estero Island also known as Ft. Myers Beach, yet within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of the Times Square and Bay Walk entertainment districts. The majestic everglades are just a short drive away, as well as Bush Gardens and all the theme parks of the Orlando area.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1950

                      About the owner: Our family owned and operated a beachfront resort on Estero Island for almost 50 years, this cottage was the beginning of that resort and has been honored with an Historic Designation. Three generations of the family still reside on the island and are involved in many community activities.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, North Island:
                      This cottage was our most popular and generations of families returned year after year. This cottage is large and spacious giving families lots of room to relax. The dock offers a great place to fish. Enjoy old Florida living at its best.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      This cottage has beautiful views of the sunrise over Estero Bay. Our local bottle-nose dolphins can be seen daily, as well as an occasional manatee and our native birds can be seen in abundance.
